Consciousness and the Brain
This study group will read and discuss Stanislas Dehaeneā€™s 2014 book, subtitled Deciphering how the brain codes our thoughts. Dehaene, a mathematician and professor of experimental cognitive psychology at the College de France, summarizes two decades of research by himself and others into the neural basis of consciousness. Based on experimental data and theoretical analysis, he suggests that consciousness is a process of brain-wide information sharing. Please read the introduction and first chapter for the first class. Craig Stephan is a retired physicist who has led several OLLI discussion groups.
